About
I have more than 17 years of practice working with clients ranging from startups to Fortune 50 companies on matters involving corporate formation, commercial transactions, business litigation, corporate restructuring, and appeals. In the past two years I have taken and defended dozens of depositions, and "first chaired" multi-day trials in Illinois and Arizona.

I am also a partner with Universal Corporate Services, a firm that specializes in assisting non-U.S. individuals and companies with establishing U.S. operations.

"I hired Patrick Jones to dismiss a case out of state, and he went far and beyond our agreement on upcounsel and attended several hearings without charging any extras. Patrick was a pleasure to deal with and, unlike most attorneys, quickly answered questions, and was very knowledgable and straight forward about the process. I really felt at ease with Patrick despite a difficult case. At the end, he actually managed to dismiss it! He is my favorite attorney in IL and I highly recommend Patrick for any business related matters! "
